Every now and then, a headline has me wondering “what is this?” I love whales and watching them. I love salmon in a very different way and usually only watch them on my dinner plate. So, when the Insurance Journal listed a headline, Flood Program Must Consider Salmon and Whales, my curiosity was piqued.
I hate to make doomsday predictions, but there is a possibility that the BP Oil Spill could be worse than any hurricane or catastrophe that I have been involved with. I spent yesterday speaking with others about the current situation. Indeed, my father teaches those in the oil industry how to recover and react to oil spills. Unless the source of the oil is stopped or slows down soon, oil is going to be all over the northern Gulf Coast and Florida. If the spill cannot be contained or slowed in the near future, it will significantly impact our economy.
